lanterns on the lawn

Ever wonder what it would be like to spend a night at Tryon Palace? Well, now is your chance! Lanterns on the Lawn brings guests to camp on the South Lawn for a family-friendly sleepover complete with s'mores and sing-a-longs.

Campers can reserve a 15-square foot plot for a campsite on Saturday, April 7. The cost is $60 for up to four guests. Children 5 and under are free.

Saturday evening activities include crafts, lawn games, a dinner buffet of hamburgers and hot dogs, s’mores, a campfire sing-a-long, and a 15-minute moonlit walk through the Wilderness Garden.

Wake up on Sunday to a breakfast of coffee, juice, doughnuts and fruit, followed by a sunrise garden walk and family yoga session.
